Abundant Sunshine, Brief Shower, 94 Degrees
They were wrong. Dead wrong. And I was oh so glad that they were. The weather report called for rain this morning and throughout the day. We had a five minute shower during the whole trip and nothing more. Fine by me.
But expecting rain I had disconnected the water and sewer the night before leaving only the electric to be disconnected on Tuesday. The slides were already in. We were, in essence, almost ready to roll.
Come Tuesday, 8:30 am, I disconnected the electric, the jacks came up, I hooked up the car, did a tug test on all the lockers and we were on the road.
The trip had some hills which were no problem. We also had some traffic as we passed through several towns on Route 15. The roads were generally in good repair. The only blip, we were run off the road by a semi going by in the left land on Route 81. Thankfully, the right shoulder was wide enough for me to use it. He went on down the road weaving between lanes for a bit more causing issues with others. I just hung back until he was well gone. Other than that we made the trip in good time with no other surprises.
Well, one more. When we arrived I discovered our shower door had fallen off! Thankfully the glass had not shattered and it was easy enough to put the door back on. I have to remember to lock it closed in the future.
So, we’re back where we were three weeks ago. We arrived just a little after 1 pm. This is the first leg of a multi-leg trip back to Florida to our new house. I’ll also be starting my treatment for prostrate cancer sometime in July.
This is our new home for the next couple of days. We’re in a different part of the park but this site is also a pull through with FHU. However, one thing hasn’t changed, this site like the one in May slopes toward the front. No matter, did you note what is up and working on our roof? Our DISH antenna has found and locked on to all three satellites! We have our TV back. Ah, life is back to normal.
Right now, this part of the park is really empty. There are maybe six or seven other rigs tucked in under the trees off to the right but that is it. I’m sure by this weekend it will be full but we’ll be long gone by then.
That was today’s travel day on The Road of Retirement. One nice perk about coming back to a familiar area, we knew exactly where to go for supper when we arrived. We went and purchased Chinese for our afternoon meal. It was just a few minutes away so we picked it up and brought it back home. It made it so much easier on both of us. Well, that was our day. Thank you Lord for another safe trip.
